Every year, CEA students in the French Riviera get the opportunity to intern at the Cannes Film Festival in the fields of media, communications, event organizing, team building, writing, editing, camera work, journalism, business, marketing, and much more. They get a "Festival Badge" that allows them to attend various parts of the festival, including film screening, press conferences, parties and the Red Carpet. Most importantly, this is an amazing networking opportunity for students to experience, meeting all of the celebrities is just a perk.
Students who study abroad for their Spring semester in the French Riviera with CEA apply for the internship abroad when they are on-site.
